Hello! I'm Stephanie, I'm 28 and live in Cincinnati, Ohio. I'm a Scorpio, which probably tells you more than you need to know about me, or that (as Sheldon Cooper would say) I've bought into the mass cultural delusion that the suns apparent position relative to arbitrarily defined constellations at the time of my birth has some affect on my personality. The previous message has been brought to you by The Big Bang Theory. For the record, I believe. I've tamed a few of my Scorpio traits but some parts of me will never change.
My city is famous for once having pigs roaming the streets, that's a real fact - Cincinnati is still sometimes referred to as Porkopolis. I guess, in an effort to make that not as sad as it sounds people here have tried to make it a good thing. There are "flying pigs" throughout the city and the are tons of charity pig events. If you love pigs, it'd probably be fun for you to visit downtown. Sometimes I drive by the most random places and see pigs with wings. I like Cincy a lot, I live close enough to the city to do a lot of fun city things, but my neighborhood is quiet and pretty and everyone has a yard.
I am not a fast swapper and I don't swap a lot - I prefer to selectively choose swaps I can throw myself into. You can review my Flickr for the kinds of swaps I enjoy.
The exception would be random letter or card swaps when I want to make a connection.
I'm a total nerd, I have dorky hobbies and get a kick out of pop culture. I've been interested in fandom for 15 years, mostly Anne Rice, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Sometimes I wish there was a fandom secrets for swap-bot.
I don't have real babies, but my little rescued puppies are my kind of babies. They are adorable and spoiled rotten.
My husband ♥Henry♥ takes up a good portion of my time. He's just as much of a nerd as I am, so we get along pretty great.
Dungeons and Dragons! We've started playing D&D and I'm really enjoying myself! I love my characters I've created and I love our party. We're about ready to start a new campaign and I'm so excited. If you play, message me!
I love swap-bot for inspiring me to try new things and to get better at the things I think I know how to do.
I love swap-bot for making a connection more than snagging free stuff that's my taste. I live in fear of becoming a hoarder (though you could never guess it as I am constantly decluttering!) so I don't really need lots of stuff.
I'd love to know about you, or see that you took some time in sending me something. I don't have too many IRL friends that are into crafting or that really understand why I love it as much as I do. Connecting with you (a botter who understands!) means something to me.
I'll always try to do my best in making my partners happy, I'm a people pleaser by nature. It makes me happy to make others happy.
If I'm going to be late I'll let you know. I hope you do the same. Communication goes a long way with me and I'm not scary at all. I swap for fun and because I like getting to know other people.
If you read my profile and think we'd have fun swapping, shoot me an message and we can do a private swap!
I'm a novice, but I really enjoy it! I think it feeds into my hoarding instinct.
Oh, I can also do simple macrame - I know 2 knots. It is usually enough to make the kind of hemp friendship necklaces they sell at head shops, but nothing more complex. One day I want to learn more.
Still not a pro, really, but I learn each time I make something! I've made little toys, a pair of PJ pants and a few purses. Of all the things I can do, I find sewing the most satisfying.
I love doing paper crafts! I love the end results of scrapbooking but I don't print out enough pictures, just hoard supplies. ;-) I love collage.
This is zen-like for me! I really like doing it, but I wouldn't say that I'm the best. I've made some things that I think are okay. My boyfriend is amazing at this! I'll try to put a few I've done on my Flickr.
Recipes, especially your favorites, are always appreciated. I may not have a lot of secret recipes I can send you, but I can send some of my favorites or ones that work for us.
I love hand writing letters! I love buying stationery! I love note-cards! Mostly, I love hearing the goings on of my pals lives. I'm a bit nosy.
I love all colors, but I like some more than others!
I also believe that one thing can NEVER have too many ribbons or paper flowers. Ribbons and paper flowers make everything better.
I like almost everything except the stuff everyone hates: prejudice, meanness, narrow-mindedness, cattiness.
There are some things others may enjoy more than me:
I'm pretty picky about the kinds of body soap/lotion that I use, it doesn't need to be expensive or anything, I'm just really weird about it.
I'm not religious, but if you are and the love of your religion compels you to send me some stuff, okey dokey. I won't be converted, but I like learning about new things and your story of your faith would be interesting and touching.
I like to read, as a child I was never without a book in hand. Nowadays I don't read as much as I should and when I do it is usually something light and entertaining (read: trashy).
I like entertaining non-fiction and books about zombies. Anything with an interesting, provocative main character, mental manipulation or featuring a post-apocalyptic world.
I'm a fan of almost all fiction, but I really like kids books and books aimed at young adults. Some favorites:
I'm always looking for new books to read, so if you loved something I want to know about it!
My favorite music is classic rock. I have been obsessed with the Beatles since I was 9 years old, but I knew of and loved them before then. I no longer collect Beatles merchandise, but subtle references to them are always appreciated. :)
Jim Croce reminds me of my dad and I can't hear a James Taylor song without crying.
Classic rock reminds me of being a kid and better times, even though I wasn't alive when it was being recorded.
We ♥ TV. I know it is terrible and we should get better hobbies, but whatever. We're happy.
Some of my favorite genres are:
Favorite shows we currently watch:
I loved Supernatural and Dexter, but I'm not current on either show.
Regarding Links Found Here
Here's the link for Treksek Angel List
I no longer update. It was really cool to see everyone in force to angel! If someone wants to update send me a PM.
I put a Flickr link up- don't go if you don't want to be spoiled! I'm trying to be more pro-active in getting my pictures uploaded! I also talk, sometimes at length, about why or how I did something.
I have an Etsy favorites link up, but please don't think that I think it's my swap-bot shopping list and I think you should get me stuff from it. I use it as inspiration and because I love looking at beautiful things when I'm bored. I've found looking at others really helpful in understanding their style.
On Pinterest I'm meliamellon too.
